  1. I am so sorry for your loss. I mourn with you but I can’t help but feel joy for your mom as she no longer even knows what pain, suffering, and sorrow even are. Unfortunately those are things that we who are still waiting have to deal with. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. I am so sorry for your family’s loss. I always enjoyed the times I spent with your Mom when I was visiting with Karen. We shared quite a few laughs. Heaven has gained another ANGEL!!!!!! You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
